Challenge: Camera Movement (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Date: Oct 25, 2009
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 2.5s
Galleries: Abstract, Blur
Date Uploaded: Oct 26, 2009

long exposure, using ND filter

movement of camera from first position to second position during exposure

first position started focused on vertical right-hand stalk, then camera was pulled back and moved downward to the left to fill frame with a diagonal stalk further forward of first position, while simultaneously rotating focus ring to a point (determined before exposure) that brought the diagonal stalk in focus, or close to focused





The spots you might detect here are in this case not dust spots but "age" spots on the leaves themselves.

What Colleen said! The pastels are lovely, and the created softness/composition combo complement (compliment?) the pastel feel as well. While the red of the Posthumous seems a bit garish, it is a nice token. Just don't place it too close to the photograph. :-)

Very pleasing blend of colour and form. (And from your notes I see this is not casually achieved).

Love the pastel shades in this. This would look great hanging on a wall.

I don't know why, but I find this to be particularly beautiful. I give it the posthumous red ribbon.
